The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use at an assay dependent concentration. To detect hMIP-3-b by Western Blot analysis this antibody can be used at a concentration of 0.1 - 0.2 µg/ml. Used in conjunction with compatible secondary reagents the detection limit for recombinant hMIP-3-b is 1.5 - 3.0 ng/lane, under either reducing or non-reducing conditions.
Use at an assay dependent concentration. To detect hMIP-3-b by direct ELISA (using 100µl/well antibody solution) a concentration of at least 0.5µg/ml of this antibody is required. This antigen affinity purified antibody, in conjunction with compatible secondary reagents, allows the detection of 0.2 - 0.4 ng/well of recombinant hMIP-3-b.
Use at an assay dependent concentration. To yield one-half maximal inhibition [ND50] of the biological activity of hMIP-3-b (100 ng/ml), a concentration of 2.7 - 4.0 µg/ml of this antibody is required.
FunctionMay play a role not only in inflammatory and immunological responses but also in normal lymphocyte recirculation and homing. May play an important role in trafficking of T-cells in thymus, and T-cell and B-cell migration to secondary lymphoid organs. Specifically binds to chemokine receptor CCR7. Recombinant CCL19 shows potent chemotactic activity for T-cells and B-cells but not for granulocytes and monocytes.
Tissue specificityExpressed at high levels in the lymph nodes, thymus and appendix. Intermediate levels seen in colon and trachea, while low levels found in spleen, small intestine, lung, kidney and stomach.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the intercrine beta (chemokine CC) family.
